NORWICH – In 2014, Pastor Andy Doyle along with his wife, Tracie, ambitiously set fourth on a new a path to answer their calling and bring their faith downtown Norwich, a year later the humble church is still going strong.
Congregating on Sundays at 20 South Broad St., As I Am Church operates beneath the banner of breaking tradition; so much so that they've adopted the slogan “Breaking down the walls of Tradition.”
“We are still a small church, and still growing,” said Pastor Doyle. “We have a very relaxed atmosphere, and just want people to feel free to come as they are and explore this life, and their faith.”
“The non-denominational format of the bible-based church is designed for todays living,” said Tracie Doyle. “We have had a steadily increasing attendance, with anywhere from a handful up to 25 or more showing up for sunday service.”
According to the Doyles, all sermons are concise and short, and there are no long periods of standing or keeling.
